Penn, a student at Sword & Cross, is an office aid and goes out of her way early in the movie to let Luce know that she has access to all the students' records. Later, she admits to having read Luce's file, but then not long afterward, she's surprised to find out the previous day was Luce's birthday. If she had read Luce's file, then it seems unlikely she wouldn't have known about Luce's birthday. See more »
Since barely anything happened in the book, I thought that the book adaptation would be actually good, they just had to skip the boring parts. But what did the writers do? They added more subplots. Some of them are appear only in later books and some of them are brand new, and because of that the movie lacks focus and feels like a big montage, not an actual story.
P. S.: Still better than the book.
